obama and president george w. bush, when you look at their approval ratings mirror each other. they show this. both these presidents had visionary styles, and then they like to delegate. by being out of the loop on many the details it's not surprising to me that we see policy failures in both administration. >> we need to take a break. we'll pick back up on this when we return to "inside story." >> a senator under investigation and only al jazeera america is there. uncovering the corruption opening the files... >> are you going to resign if your're indicted? >> breaking the story real reporting, this is what we do... al jazeera america [[voiceover]] every day, events sweep across our country. and with them, a storm of views. how can you fully understand the impact unless you've heard angles you hadn't considered? antonio mora brings you smart conversation that challenges the status quo with unexpected opinions and a fresh outlook. including yours. determining using some sort of subjective interpretation of their policy as to whether or not your particular report was actually abusive, bec

gets in there our reputation around the world will be so much better. everybody hates george w. bush. this is all we need for a brand new world. little did we know while he was giving that speech in berlin his people were bugging every office. think about the damage this has done and this is one more of those bush/cheney programs that this administration has taken to ridiculous lengths. >> the real world implications is massive. the damage has been done that's not just political but mic economically. the idea that the president doesn't know about these things over and over again -- i imagine people think it's a better explanation than saying he did know. that's hard for me to see how it's a positive. if that is true that's alarming. given that they are arguing this wholesale review we have not heard a revamp of this from the president. he made his speech, he made his press conference. he needs to go back and explain exactly what's happening. these revelations keep coming and more will continue. >> one more story before we go to break. over the weekend the affordable care act main web
york. good to see you. and mercedes is a former spokeswoman for president george w. bush. thanks so much for being with us. >> thank you for having us. >> okay. so the president says he is responsible for getting the website working efficiently. that as we now learn only six people enrolled on the first day. so, you know, i wonder, mercedes, do you think the president knew that before he said he'll get it done? >> well, you know, we don't know. at this point, what we do know is that obviously this has been an embarrassing week for the president. the president is trying to make ground in terms of explaining why the launch was so dysfunctional, so messy. and the fact that he said he didn't know about the site. but it doesn't make sense when you think that it's his most important legislative accomplishment and really part of his legacy and the fact that he wouldn't test drive it before it would go out to the public. so, again, i think it's very disappointing to see what has happened with the president and him really being the lead along with secretary sebelius to make sure that the sys
george w. bush was trying to appoint to the court. the fact is right now by law there are three empty seats there and democrats say that's what the president's job is to do is to fill the empty seats. >> you would hope he would talk a broader look at where there are judicial emergencies because of heavy case loads and lack of judges both at the trial court and the appellate level. but it is clear that you are right, there has been a bipartisan-ship when it comes to dealing with this. the democrats blocked george w. bush's nominee. they say there was not enough work to do. the work lead has gone down since that time. the senator has a sensible piece of legislation that would transfer these seats to other places in the country where they have a very heavy case load. at a time when the budgets are tight and we are looking for places to save it seems to me using these judge usa pointed by president obama -- appointed by president obama by the way and in other places they are needed makes sense. >> you mentioned judicial emergencies and just so people understand there are federal circuits
that targeted world leaders when he took over the white house from president george w. bush. they say he also would have been told which countries were being targeted in those brifings, but then senior official still insists to cnn that president obama didn't learn until recently. so which of these sources are telling the truth? jim sciutto is out front. >> reporter: administration officials tell cnn the spying of loaders of close allies such as german chancellor angela mergle took place bout president obama's knowledge. a senior official says it's not reasonable to expect that the president would have been involved in or necessarily briefed on decisions about individual intelligence targets. in an interview at the fusion cable network president obama says his administration is reviewing the way it collects intelligence. >> what we've seep over the last several years is their capaci capacities continue to develop and expand. and that's why we're initiating a review that what they're able to do doesn't mean that's what they should be doing. the national security operations generally have one p

the american enterprise institute and speech writer for president george w. bush. this is it. it is one thing to say -- he said they were going to get to keep their plans, period. now this regulation shows that months after obama care was passed, july, it passed in march. july or before, i should say. they knew. they were estimating internally in the administration ten million people will lose insurance. >> you've got the smoking gun in your hand. they knew. when president obama looked the american people in the eye and said if you like your health insurance, you can keep your current plan, period, no matter what, that was a bald-faced lie. he intended -- in fact, i think they intended for these people to lose their health insurance. the reason for that is -- as you pointed out -- it will be up to 14 million people. why do they want them to lose insurance? they need them to move into the exchanges to subsidize poor people. the individual mandate is the most lucrative part -- excuse me, the individual market is the most lucrative segment of the health insurance industry because they don't use
is a george w. bush judge looking at what this lu legislature did and saying that it cannot stand. >> yes. and the piece that you highlighted that it was an undue burden, that is the judicial standard and what this judge found is that with a third of abortion clinics in texas likely to close as a result of this law, and no medical reason to require abortion providers to have admitting privileges, it just couldn't stand. what they call these laws is trap laws. essentially what they are is they are not designed to do anything other than force the closure of abortion clinics. in texas and in states across the country, 27 of these states have similar type trap laws where they pretend to be all about women's health but really their only purpose is to try to restrict access to abortion. >> now the attorney general running for governor, listen to an ad he is running now. >> we won't allow texas to be taken over by california style government. we will win this election because the people and values of texas are on our side. we know the power of the individual, what liberty means to the voters who

trying to imagine what charles would say about this confluence if george w. bush were in the white house. >> i think that these two things are actually, in fact, separate things. i think that -- first, they are completely different agencies and time lines. the nsa thing has been happening over a very long period of time. the website issues happen over a much shorter period of time when they were rolling it out, the government was shut down. the president was distracted by the idea of trying not letting the country going into default. >> oh, h -- >> come on, ross. but they are separate things but you are right you take your lumps. they do happen at the same time and people will make -- draw a straight line between the two even if i don't think they should. >> does it raise the broader question, though, charges charles, that the president is out of touch? >> that's what i was trying to get at. i don't get that sense but it's something that could be embarrassing, your underlings have to make sure that you understand things are happening and you're in the loop. that is a problem in these par

this confluence if george w. bush were in the white house. >> i think these two things were actually separate things. they're completely different agencies and completely different timelines. the nsa situation has been happening over a very long time. the website issues happened over a much shorter period of time when they were rolling it out. the government was shut down. the president was distracted by the idea of trying not to let the country go into default. >> ah. >> there is no ah, come on, ross. >> sorry. >> but they're kind of separate things. i think you're right. you take your lumps, because they do happen at the same time. and people will draw a straight line between the two even if i don't think that they should. >> does it raise the broader question, though, charles, that the president is out of touch? >> that is what i was trying to get at. i just don't get that sense, but i do believe that whenever there is something that could be embarrassing, you know, your underlings have a responsibility to make sure you're covered and to make sure you understand things are happening and th

contrast of the george w. bush administration to deliver a freedom agenda sometimes through the barrel of a gun that would bring democracy to a region that has known mostly misrule. that doctrine or its application proved entirely unworkable as the society's freed of their authoritarian shackles had nothing on which to build. we may be relearning this in libya as well. these setbacks and the realization that democracy building is a generational undertaking must not lead us to disengage from the region. the forces freed by the arab spring will not be contained, and i still believe they can lead hundreds of millions of people to more representative forms of government, more economic opportunity and we must hope more tranquility and peace within their borders. the united states needs to help build institutions capable of supporting a transition in the arab world and three dimensions, political, economic and civil society. unmet economic needs are the most pressing. at its heart, the arab spring is the expression of discontent of millions of arabs that sees the economic opportunity that th
. that's a better performance than the e.p.a. had at the circuit during george w. bush's administration. in particular, the e.p.a. has scored landmark victories on cases relating to greenhouse gas regulations, ethanol-blended gasoline, and mountaintop removal coal mining. but beyond energy and environmental issues, the d.c. circuit court has upheld president obama's executive order regarding embryonic stem cell research on two separate occasions, in 2011 and 2012. again, these aren't my preferred outcomes, but i think it demonstrates that the d.c. circuit court has learned to strike a balance and certainly is not pro-administration or anti-administration. it epitomizes what a court should be, which is an impartial administrator of justice. again, this same court upheld the affordable care act in 2011, ruling that the individual health insurance mandate was constitutional under the commerce clause. we know what happened when it got to the united states supreme court. they had a different view. but it demonstrates the kind of judicial restraint that the current d.c. court, balanced as it

the existence of george w. bush, he said. there is, without it seem to me, an obama derangement syndrome as well. do you think that one is any more acute than the other? have you been to be able diagnose more cases the other? >> well, to start, it was largely tongue-in-cheek giving it a serious diagnosis. as you know, when you try ironing in general, the iron is missed. i actually had a phrase. it came from howard dean and i write about it in the column. howard dean had been on a show and said that he was a little bit unsure as to whether bush had known about 9/11 in advance which is weird. and dean is a serious guy. so i had a phrase in there that said that dean was a little bit troubling to epidemiologists because dean was the first example of such a syndrome happening in the very state. now, because he's -- from vermont. that was obviously a clue that this was meant to be tongue-in-cheek. but on the serious issue, which is that there were people who were so opposed to anything that bush had done, yes, it applies to obama. yes, it applied to reagan. and i think it applied -- generally speaking
